Flash Fiction Challenge: They Fight Crime!
It is one of the greatest websites in the history of sited webs.
You will go there. You will click on the link. It will give you an awesome pairing of two characters (I just got HE’S A BISEXUAL SCIENTIST WHO BELIEVES HE CAN NEVER LOVE AGAIN and SHE’S A PARANOID MAGICIAN’S ASSISTANT WITH HER OWN DAYTIME TV SHOW, which is really just amazing). You will take these two characters and put them in a story together.
I don’t really care so much that they actually fight crime.
You can have that as a basis, but mostly, I’m just looking to see these characters interact.
So, do that.

[EDIT: I see that the site automatically makes each of the two characters male and female — I don’t think there’s any need to enforce that in your stories. Feel free to go with whatever genders you see fit.)
